Pay Systems

We recognize that we will never be able to compete with the private sector on salaries especially when it comes to the technical talent and skills we require.  However, what we can offer - something that goes above and beyond a salary - is the operational experience to work alongside with the U.S. Navy's finest Sailors.  You will have hands-on experience in cyberspace operations and/or be critical in supporting operations that help defend our Navy's networks and systems.  The operational training, knowledge learned and experiences gained are ones that you simply cannot experience in the private sector.  To review the government salaries, go to pay-systems.  Note that pay is also dependent on where you live, so be sure to choose the right locality.  

Benefits & Rewards

In addition to operational experience, being a government civilian also has its Benefits and Rewards including some great civilian programs. 

Equal Employment Opportunities & Reasonable Accommodations

Equality of opportunity is recognized as an essential element of readiness. It is vital to attracting, developing and retaining a top-quality workforce in order to accomplish the strategic mission of the Department of the Navy.  It is our policy to ensure that equal employment opportunity (EEO) is fully integrated into the Navy mission with demonstrated commitment from leadership at all levels.  Providing equal opportunity in employment for all employees and applicants through clearly defined Human Resources and EEO policies and programs that include Reasonable Accommodations (RA) gives us the foundation we need to proactively prevent discrimination in employment of any protected class beyond the limitations and requirements of military service and to prohibit acts of reprisal against persons presenting or processing allegations of discrimination.  For additional information on the Navy's EEO policies and programs, visit  |  |  Navy FOIA  |  DoD Accessibility/Section 508  |  No Fear Act  |  Open Government  |  Plain Writing Act  |  Veterans Crisis Line  |  DoD Safe Helpline  |  Navy SAPR  |  NCIS Tips  |  Privacy Policy  |  Contact US
